What happens when a house is divided against itself? Does the house remain strong and united or does the house crumble and go extinct? The #All Progressives Congress have finally realised that every efforts must be geared towards blocking all loopholes that may have been breeding discord within the party and have decided to act.
In the aftermath of the emergence of #Senator Bukola Saraki as the elected Senate #President of the #Eighth National Assembly, and #Hon. Yakubu Dogara as the #Speaker of the House of Representatives, the #APC rejected them and vowed to sanction them accordingly.
However, within three days of these whole saga, the APC on Friday June 12, 2015 released a press statement acknowledging that they may have been hasty in passing sentences on #Senator Saraki and Hon. Dogara; and as such, they have decided to recognize both men as the duly elected Senate president and #House of Representatives Speaker of the 8th Assembly respectively.
The #National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, #Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, disclosed this latest development within the party to #State House correspondents shortly after joining members of the transition committee set up by President Muhammadu #Buhari to present their report to the President at the Defence House, Abuja.
When asked specifically whether the party would accept Saraki as the President of the Senate, Odigie-Oyegun said, “Of course! He has been duly elected by his colleagues. We have a reality and we must live with it.”
On Saraki’s aborted visit to the APC secretariat on Thursday, the party chairman said there were a lot of consultations going on at that time and he could not have been in two places at the same time, The Punch reported.
“Nothing went wrong (on Saraki’s aborted visit), there were a lot of consultations and you can’t be in two places at the same time.
“So, it was not comfortable for us, but we have been talking. We don’t want to make a song and dance of it, everything is being put in proper perspective,” he said.
On the crisis that erupted in the party after the elections in the National Assembly, Odigie-Oyegun said the APC had faced greater challenges before and the latest one too would pass away.
“It is not the first or second time we have passed through this kind of scenario and we came out strong. This may not even be the last time, we come out every time stronger and more determined,” he said.
The party chairman said what happened was within the APC family and they were sorting it out within the family. He added that aggrieved persons who threatened to go to court were doing so within their rights.
“People say they are going to court which is their right, but as a party, we are looking at everything and we are coming out strong,” he concluded.
